An internationally recognised tattoo artist with over a decade of experience working in traditional Iruzumi Japanese tattooing. Having gained extensive experience working throughout Europe and collecting tattoos from world renowned artists you can be confident that there are no compromises in professional high standards. Body suits, arm sleeves, leg sleeves, back pieces, chest plates and ribs are the majority of my daily projects. All motifs, dragon ryu, snake hebi, koi fish, Koi dragon, foodog shishi, phoenix, hawk, tiger, Baku are my most popular requests and each and every tattoo is hand drawn and unique. Background composition like fingerwaves, clouds, wind bar, cherry blossoms, maple leafs are drawn directly onto the skin for maximum flow.
